[osgeo-ph] New gvSIG 2.1 version

Mario Carrera-3

The gvSIG Association announces the publishing of the gvSIG 2.1 final
version [1].

This version, that is the first one based on the new architecture
oriented to users, has a lot of new features as you can see now.

Besides the new functionalities and the correction of a great number of
errors that have been detected thanks to the community collaboration, we
want to highlight the availability of a distribution for Linux 64 bits
and portable versions for Windows as well as for Linux.

Together with the gvSIG 2.1 releasing we publish the new gvSIG website,
that includes the old gvSIG Association website as well as the project
one, and at the same time a knowledge portal about the gvSIG technology.
Besides this new website will be to make the new products of the gvSIG
catalog visible, like gvSIG Roads or gvNIX.

We want to take advantage of this announcement to thank all the people
that have collaborated in making this new version reality, and all the
entities that have counted on the gvSIG Association services to solve
their needs on geomatics, helping to guarantee the sustainability of the
project at this way.

We hope you enjoy all the novelties of this version, that are:

     - Legends
        - Expresions
        - Proportional symbols
        - Graduated symbols
        - Dot density
        - Quantities by category
        - Charts (pies and bars)
        - Import/export SLD
     - Copy/paste geometries
     - Lateral buffer
     - Split line
     - Consecutive numbers function
     - Duplicated records function
     - Derived geometries
     - Chart document
     - Map sheets (map series)
     - Connection with OpenStreetMap services
     - New symbol libraries: Geology, POI Cities, Commerce,
Military-APP6, Collective Mapping, Colors, AIGA, Weather
     - PostGIS 2.x support (raster and vector)
     - Layout
        - Insert chart
        - New layout with TOC (table of contents) included.
        - New grid functionalities.
     - Portable views (thematic maps plugin)
     - Advanced dissolve geoprocess
     - Labeling
        - Advanced labeling
        - Halo option
        - Always show label option
     - Raster
        - Set projection to layer
        - Change data type
        - Create multi-file layer
        - Convert to grayscale

        - Tasseled cap
        - Masks by regions of interest
     - Export to KML
        - Show attributes in ballon option

     - Reprojection:

        - New EPSG projections support.
     - Scripting: raster data support
     - Layer loading:
        - Dragging layers from the file browser.
     - Memory management at the Preferences menu.
     - Dyschromatopsia / colour blindness

[osgeo-ph] MOOC Cycle "GIS for Users" free of charge

Mario Carrera-3

Hi all,

there's a MOOC cycle on gvSIG available free of charge.

This cycle is made up of three different Modules:

    Module 1: "Introduction to GIS" (starting on the 4th of May 2015)
    Module 2: "Layer Editing" (starting on the 25th of May 2015)
    Module 3: "Raster Analysis" (starting on Autumn 2015)

It will lead participants to how to use and exploit the potentiality of
the open source software gvSIG while performing the most common GIS
activities. This Course is both addressed to beginners and skilled GIS
users who want to learn how to use this software.

The Course is open in continuous form and each module requires a
participants engagement of around thirty hours.

Participants can thus plan individually the time to allocate to the
course and complete all the scheduled activities without interfering
with their daily work.

This Course is completely free of charge except for those participants
asking for the corresponding credits of the gvSIG user certification
program from the gvSIG Association, that is submitted to the payment of
40 Euro for each module or 100 Euro for the whole cycle. It will be
earmarked for the sustainability of the project.

For further information about topics, goals…:
http://web.gvsig-training.com/index.php/es/quienes-somos-2/noticias-2/145-the-free-mooc-cycle-gvsig-for-users

For registration, you have to press "Enroll" at the corresponding
Module, and then accept the "Site policy agreement". Finally you will
have to register at the web page, or login if you were registered already.

Best regards
